Does East Bay Tire manufacture tires in addition to carrying other brands for wholesale?

Dealer & Manufacturer Questions

Are there any major tire brands that East Bay Tire does not carry?
If it exists, we can source it for you. Bridgestone and Firestone are brands not commonly in stock. Aside from that, if the market needs it, we probably have it.
In-order to create a non-taxable account, we do need a resale certificate and basic company information. We’d love to hear anything about your business so we can best support you.
Specialty tires are exactly that…specialty. While we source from around the globe to have the right tires in stock at the right time…not everything goes to plan. Production for specialty tires is often infrequent, so you can expect us to plan ahead. Tell us what you need and when you need it, we will find a solution.
Trucks, Trailers and Containers…we will get it to you.

I’m interested in becoming a service technician. Does East Bay Tire offer in-house training and accreditation for new employees?

Our aim is to have every technician accredited by the Tire Industry Association (TIA). We will provide this training and testing to you.

We do! More often than not, our entry level sales associates are grown from within, those who have seen other aspects of the industry in another East Bay Tire role.

Yes, we do. In some cases, we provide relocation assistance moving within the state!

Does East Bay Tire guarantee a maximum response time and/or roll time for roadside service and repair?
No. Our response time is the fastest in the region (averaging under 100 minutes from the time of call to up time) with over 50,000 calls annually. When a unit is down there are hundres of variables (traffic, time of day, tire damage, weather, type of equipment) that our outside our control. Count on us every time to save you time.
We go to where our customers are. While we may not be everywhere, we will find a solution for you. As a rule of thumb, within 90 miles of one of our service centers is well within our reach.

If it’s not safe for a driver, operator, or technician we will pause until safe conditions can be realized.

People and our standards. We don’t want to offer services that aren’t up to the standards you expect from us. More than likely, we are actively looking for a great East Bay Tire team member with the skills needed to provide those services you require.
